This hotel gives real service!
Being welcome, safe, being pampered, to be in a beautiful place, my room was very ok -a bit average, free WiFi and with a great view on the beautiful garden..good food, nice people around; my second home in Africa!!
Everyone (also in the rest of Nairobi!) is so friendly, helpful and relaxed. The breakfast and diner; really good! Having diner at the restaurant at the pool is the best place; food is better, sitting outside, some days nice bands/music. And coming back every day someone at the entrance says; 'hey...welcome back, good to see you again!' the safety guards these details (especially when traveling alone) is very nice. There is also a great shop for massage/hairdressers/manicure/pedicure.
and the taxi drivers in front are very reliable; one is called Joseph; [--] he guided me daily, even when I needed to get off at 6 am he was always there, driving safe and even waiting for hours and bringing me from one location to another. Good prices too.
